The "Dear Iran Project" has grown from our desire to promote harmony between the people of nations in conflict. With the help of a team of volunteers, we are currently putting together a social media project that will be seen in Iran. We want to build a bridge of understanding and respect between the people of Iran, Israel, and the United States, and we are hoping to make a war between our governments less inevitable.
We're creating a "Dear Iran Project" Facebook page, asking people in the U.S. to send us a 15-30 second heartfelt video message for the Iranian people, using their smart phone, camera, or webcam. We want to encourage individual creativity and establish a sense of connection during this time of shifting global politics and internet opportunities.
We're looking for volunteers!
1) a "Social Media Project Assistant"... someone who's familiar with Facebook, YouTube and web design using word press. You would be working with a PR professional who has well known national clients.
2) a "Film Editor"... someone who knows how to work with Final Cut Pro ... and can combine our footage from Iran (it's already been edited from 28 hours down to one hour) with local footage ... LOTS of room for creativity here. This project will initially take the form of a short promo and eventually morph into a dynamic 10 minute video piece. There is a chance your work will be used in a forthcoming documentary.
If our "Dear Iran Project" touches your heart, and you want to share your skills to make a difference in the world, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team does much of its work with the help of the wonderful staff of CMCM in San Rafael http://cmcm.tv/. We also have contacts in Oakland.
The "Dear Iran Project" has non-profit fiscal sponsorship through "The Social Justice Center of Marin". Your work will be internationally distributed. We would appreciate as much or as little time as you're willing to contribute, and you can make your own schedule. We also have a valuable barter item we can offer in exchange for your precious time.
Come join our FABULOUS team!
